Disclaimer: This is a pretty involved set of questions. I’m sorry.. just any help would be appreciated. Also, I visited www.dp-praha.cz already but would like some clarification.. I will be moving to Prague at the end of April for a job. My biggest fear is surviving the first week. To that end, I need to: a) buy a one year unlimited metro pass b) use that pass to get from my flat to the office and back Now from the airport I assume I'm going to take AAA taxi (or another none-ripoff variant) to the flat. I also assume I'll take a taxi to buy the metro pass. So first question: What do I need to bring to the metro place, and where is it in relation to my flat (see below)? It would be great if I could walk to it.. As for using it, I'd heard the biggest problem is people not "punching" the ticket before boarding the train.. that until it's punched it's not valid and you can get screwed by officials whose only English is "500 or police". So second question: What is all this punching business? I've read the instructions on www.dp-praha.cz but am still a bit confused.. you only do it once, forever? and how do I take a metro from: Apartment 20, Nosicka 18, Praha 10 ? Strasnice, 100 00 To Vaclavske namesti 11, 110 00 Praha 1 And back? I’ve read it’s not complicated, but I also would like to be as prepared as possible. Lastly, I won’t have a working cell phone until I manage to get a plan set up over there (I’m thinking Vodafone) yet in the beginning I’ll be needing a taxi to run errands.. yet I won’t have a phone to call them. I’m scared to just flag one down because I’d read many horror stories. Any advice? I’ll try to look for the ones with “AAA” written on them.. will they be easy to find? Thank you all VERY much!
